Neoliberalism and Academic Repression

The Fall of Academic Freedom in the Era of Trump

Series:

Edited by Erik Juergensmeyer, Anthony J. Nocella II and Mark Seis

Neoliberalism and Academic Repression: The Fall of Academic Freedom in the Era of Trump co-edited by Dr’s Erik Juergensmeyer, Anthony J. Nocella II, and Mark Seis provides a theoretical examination of the current higher education system and explains how academia is being shaped into a corporate-factory-industrial-complex. This complex is transforming the relationships within and beyond the institution, transforming the mission of higher education from being the foundation of democracy to manager of professionalism. The outstanding contributors offer strategies of social change, policy suggestions, and important critiques of neoliberal practices. This timely collection challenges the neoliberal emphasis on valuation based on job readiness and outcome achievement—promoting equity, justice, and inclusivity in the process.
